Report: Suspect arrested in case of murdered flight attendant

(CNN/KPHO) - The mother of a murdered U.S. Airways flight attendant says a suspect is now in custody.

On Saturday, Nick Aaronson was found on the floor of his Mexico City hotel room by his co-workers.

Now his mother, Anita Aaronson, says the FBI called her to tell her of the arrest.

Police were reportedly able to track the suspect using the GPS system in her son's stolen cell phone.

Anita Aaronson says her oldest son, Jason, is currently en route to Mexico so that he can "bring Nick home."

"We are devastated. Totally," she said. "All of us."
